Drive-through pageant opens Friday at Boys Ranch Town in Edmond


EDMOND — Boys Ranch Town is gearing up for its 46th Christmas drive-through pageant, which opens Friday.

“The boys are always excited,” said Brent Thackerson, Boys Ranch Town director, who oversees the production featuring more than 40 of the boys who live at the ranch.

The scenes that depict the life of Jesus and his teachings have been updated, and Thackerson said the new backdrops will be noticeable.

The pageant will be open from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday through Sunday. The ranch is at 5100 E 33rd St. in Edmond.

Guests can download a soundtrack to be played during the 15- to 20-minute pageant, or can pick up a CD when they arrive.

Animals such as camels, sheep and a donkey are included in the scenes alongside the boys from the ranch. The animals are raised by the boys at the ranch.

If the weather is bad, guests can call 341-3606 to make sure the pageant will still be held, but Thackerson said that he is expecting a nice weekend.

The Boys Ranch Town accepts donations for the pageant, but Thackerson said nothing is expected.

He said the pageant is their gift to the community, even the candy canes given out at the end.
